The sound of the cello has always enchanted me... because of all the strings, the rich, singing sound of the cello make it sound the most like a human voice. It resonates in my heart.

Sarangi (1900) ~ A beautiful full sound and a close proximity to the melodic flexibility of the human voice make the sarangi the most important bowed instrument of classical Hindustani music of northern India and Pakistan. A rigid horsehair bow (not shown) rhythmically sounds the gut melody strings that cross over an ivory elephant-shaped bridge (bara ghurac).
